Join a docent-led tour to discover commonalities between yourself, your community, and the work of Jeffrey Gibson. This multimedia artist believes that “we all share similar experiences.”

Tours will emphasize looking closely, provide cultural context, as well as artistic appreciation. Visitors are encouraged to share personal perspectives and connections.

Tours take place Wednesday through Sunday at 1:15 pm and 2:15 pm. Tours begin in the first gallery of the exhibition.
